The Texas Longhorns were bounced from the College World Series on Monday afternoon after North Carolina staved off elimination and avoided going 0-2 in Omaha. The Longhorns trip was short and doomed by losses to the Tar Heels and Florida Gators in consecutive games, ending any hopes of an NCAA Championship. While North Carolina moves on, it still must wait to learn its next opponent after severe weather hit TD Ameritrade Park on Monday evening.
The Florida Gators and Vanderbilt Commodores were on the field when tornado sirens began sounding and dark clouds descended on the area. High wind and heavy rain sent fans rushing toward the concourse as play was suspended in what was initially a simple rain delay. The weather persisted, forcing Florida and Vanderbilt to come back in the morning to finish the game. At the time, Florida held a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the sixth.
The Gators and Commodores will get back at it on Tuesday morning at 11:06 a.m. The winner will take a firm hold on the top-half of the College World Series bracket while the loser will drop down to face North Carolina in an elimination game on Wednesday.
The full, updated bracket can be found at the NCAA website.
